Roman republic


0021-030np_noir.jpg

*Here are a few coins of the roman republic. I'm quite interested in the coins of the very end of the republic : Julius Caesar, Mark Antony...

Plautilla


0191-a00.JPG

Plautilla as the title says. I felt in love with that woman because of her beauty and because of her sad story. I would never dare to tell that face to face to Caracalla : too dangerous !!! but I am sure she would have been happier with me....

There are five main types of portrait for Plautillas denarii at the Rome mint :
A - With a draped bust right, hair coiled in horizontal ridges and fastened in bun in high position. Her facial expression is juvenile
B - Hair being coiled in vertical ridges, with bun in low position. Plautilla looks here more like a young beautiful woman
C - The third bust shows a thinner face of Plautilla with hair in vertical ridges and no bun but braids covering her neck
D - The fourth type has a similar appearance with the former, but the vertical ridges disappear, hair being plastered down, still showing the right ear
E - Plautilla appears with mid long hair plastered down and covering her ears

In the mean time there are seven different reverses :
1 - CONCORDIAE AETERNAE
2 - PROPAGO IMPERI
3 - CONCORDIA AVGG
4 - CONCORDIA FELIX
5 - PIETAS AVGG
6 - VENVS VICTRIX
7 - DIANA LVCIFERA

Not every combination exists, but some of the above reverses can be shared by several obverse portraits. Noticeable also is an evolution of the obverse legend, being PLAVTILLAE AVGVSTAE (a) in 202, and becoming PLAVTILLA AVGVSTA (b) soon after
You can see the evolution of this interesting coinage in my Plautilla's gallery.

Maximinus to Philip II


0251-210np_noir.jpg

*A very rich period for the coinaholics : so many emperors and usurpers, some of them very difficult to find, even very worn.

Trajan Decius and his family, including the "divi series"


0100-510np_noir.jpg

*This is my theme gallery. All the coins here have been issued under Trajan Decius to commemorate those who where the good emperors of the past (so they said). For each one of the 11 emperor honoured, there are two main reverses : altar or eagle. So the complete collection is 22 coins. Still a lot to do.... (sob!!!)

Late roman coins


0680-310np_noir.jpg

*Here are some coins I like very much from Constantine the great to Marcian. My wish would be to be able to get at least one AE 1 for each emperor that made some. I think they are very impressive coins, and not as much thought after than the bronzes of the early empire

Well, here are the coins that have been part of my collection, some for quite a long time, some having been highlights at certain time, but some prettier, or fresher, or rarer have replaced them. So is life...
